On the listing it has
‘Rebuilt - assembled from parts some of all of which were not new’

Any idea what this means as I have the same on my V5, Mine is not a cat c or D but when I tried to get a replacement key BMW said they couldn't supply one as the car had been imported from Belgium even though it is RHD.
Confused.

No idea what it means to be honest but I didn't ask for it to be there so I guess it is just some standard text fromt he DVLA

I think it is a standard addition to most V5's where a car is modified or kit built. Seen it on many, if not all my project car V5's. I wouldn't mention it in your advert as it doesn't read well and might put a few people off. Good luck with your auction sale btw.

It was on my V5 before the car was modified, I can't see why they would add it to the V5 just because it was an import.
Odd to have a RHD from Belgium anyway I would have thought.

The auction site write the script and insist on certain points being mentioned.

Really ? You must have given them a few pointers or they'd have no clue about it !

Back in the day it was often cheaper to import a right hand drive car from Belgium, France etc rather than buying it here in the UK !

You can follow progress here - not setting the pricing sheets on fire just yet.

Should be around 5 times the current bid ( 3k ), its a nice car !
Good luck with the sale, you might get a bidding frenzy in the closing minutes !

Nothing for most of the week and then a sudden flurry of a dozen bids today as two rival bidders drove up the price to about

Can't use the pound sign on here Nick !!

Bad luck it didn't get there today, maybe try again in a few weeks when the sun comes out .

Noticed an older Challenger E type sold today at the " Classic Car Auctions " sale , it went for 26,5k with a buyers fee of 15% on top of that, so buyers can be found if the venue is right. Sold my 275 and Z3GT through that auction house and they got a result after months of trying to sell privately.

*A bit like my teenage sex life :-)

Thanks Lucky - I still need to leave it with Car & Classic for 2 weeks for them to chase around the bidders to try and sell it but then will see what else might work. Will look at Classic Car Auctions
